    Just a matter of time before the takers over run the rest of us like cockroaches. Sanders will seem like a robber baron compared to them.

    Bernie sure does scare people. Those that are scared of Bernie would be called "people that care about this country" or "people that actually think". The guy got elected to the US Senate, so nothing is impossible. Don't worry about getting lumped into either category, it won't happen, not possible.

    From an earlier post, would you please explain, "Inequality in America"? That's a phrase almost exactly like "Pay your fair share", or, "Social justice". It's good to see that you are on the cutting edge of "Newspeak" and "Newthink".

    Are you ever embarrassed? If not, you should be.

    No one is scared of a pathetic old socialist. I posted for the entertainment value. Everyone should be concerned that the democrat party hates economic growth. ****, liberals are dumb. How do they expect to pay for all their scams?

    Maybe they plan on following their socialist buddies in Venezuela and Greece.

    The economy shrunk again in the first quarter. Don't worry though, they promised they will rig the numbers to make it look better.

    Obama and the dems are continuing to flood the country with unneeded no-skill labor. That should help.

    In February, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director León Rodríguez announced that, come May, the Obama administration would be extending employment authorization eligibility to a category of immigrant previously ineligible to work in the U.S. — dependent spouses of H-1B immigrants.

    DHS began accepting applications under the new H-4 employment rule — which was part of the executive actions on immigration President Obama put in motion on November 20 — Tuesday.

    When the Obama administration announced the expansion in February, it anticipated that the number of individuals eligible to apply for work permits under the rule could be 179,600 in the first year and 55,000 for each subsequent year.

    Last month, a group of former Southern California Edison employees — displaced by H-1B visa holders — sued the administration over the new H-4 rule, arguing that it negatively impacts their job prospects.

    “DHS’s H-4 Rule, which grants work authorization to H-4 visa holders, injures Save Jobs USA’s members by (1) depriving them of statutory protections from foreign labor…(2) by increasing the number of economic competitors; and (3) by conferring benefits to their economic competitors on H-1B visas,” the lawsuit read.

    Spouses working and untethering the h1b from a specific employer are GREAT reforms.

    They both increase the bargaining leverage of the immigrant worker. They can undercut less.

    Insanity. How about employing the citizen of the US first? Firing citizens and replacing them with illegals means we then have to pay for the people fired and the additional costs associated with more people in the country that contribute in a minimum way.

    I suppose you would be willing to give up your job to make room for non-citizens..... oh wait... you already did.

    Before this reform, an h1b worker was in a situation where quitting meant deportation.

    This helps. Employers had way way too much leverage. their standard of living was also reduced as they were forced to live, single income.

    How many of you are currently doing that!?

    Bernie Sanders: The new St. Nick

    How is it that Democrats forgot about the joys Santa Claus can bring? How is it that Republicans managed to steal the Santa idea from the party of FDR and never let go?

    Understanding why Bernie Sanders’s presidential candidacy is important requires revisiting the politics of St. Nick. The senator from Vermont has little chance of defeating Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. But he is reminding his party of something it often forgets: Government was once popular because it provided tangible benefits to large numbers of Americans.

    At a time of rising inequality and short-circuited social mobility, Sanders is unapologetic about taking some wealth and income away from those who have a lot of both to ease the path upward for those who don’t. He has proudly called himself a democratic socialist, but he doesn’t spin abstract Marxist theories. He wants government to do stuff, and the sort of stuff he has in mind is potentially quite popular.

    Political commentators routinely complain about politicians who are not specific enough. Sanders has more specifics than Ben and Jerry’s has ice cream flavors. He has called for $1 trillion in infrastructure investment. He wants the federal government to mandate a minimum wage of at least $15 an hour and restrict the ability of employers to declare normal employees as “managers” and thus rob them of overtime pay.

    He would replace our current health-care hodgepodge with a Medicare-for-all single-payer system. He thinks the government should provide free college education for all comers, arguing that the Scandinavian nations and Germany are “smart enough to understand that the future of their countries depends on the education their young people get.”

    And far from cutting Social Security, he wants to expand benefits. Why? Because the decline in employer-guaranteed pensions is leaving many of today’s retirees (and will likely leave most of tomorrow’s) without the retirement security that was once far more common. He is also big on pre-kindergarten and paid sick leave.

    He’d pay for his new spending with substantial tax increases on the best-off.

    Already, his program has come under criticism from those who say its costs are too high, that the government already spends too much on senior citizens and that providing universal benefits such as free college would assist not just the less affluent but also those who may not need much help.

    Of course, there are legitimate questions about his largesse. But consider what a victory it would be for those who are weary of responding defensively to the phrase “tax and spend” if the sack of proposals Sanders carries over his shoulder began to reframe the popular debate. Suddenly, the country would be asking of this or that idea: “Why not?” Nothing could be better for politics than expanding our imaginations about what we might usefully do together to solve some big problems.

    And far from hurting a likely Clinton general-election campaign, Sanders will help Clinton by shifting the boundaries of a public conversation dominated by a crabbed and pessimistic attitude toward what government can do. The first task before former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who entered the Democratic race on Saturday, will be to challenge Sanders for the agenda-stretching role.

    Which brings us back to Santa Claus. In the 1970s, champions of supply-side economics and its steep tax cuts — thinkers and publicists such as Irving Kristol, Jude Wanniski and Arthur Laffer — argued that Republicans had become dour advocates of “root canal” economics who offered nothing to bring voters good cheer. Tax cuts could be for the GOP what programs were for Democrats, and Republicans have never stopped proposing new tax cuts.

    Wanniski championed the “Two Santa Claus Theory.” He argued for “a division of labor between Democrats and Republicans; each must be a different kind of Santa Claus.” The Democrats, “the party of income redistribution, are best suited for the role of Spending Santa Claus. The Republicans, traditionally the party of income growth, should be the Santa Claus of Tax Reduction.”

    Sure, there is a problem when it comes to deficits if one party continually spends and the other constantly cuts taxes. The supply-siders never worried about deficits very much. Sanders, at least, would answer the budget concern with new revenue.

    What’s valuable for progressives in the Two Santa Claus Theory is that it reminds voters that the point of tax increases is not to drag down the rich but to finance initiatives on behalf of citizens who can use some help in lifting themselves up. It also fights against a gloomy resignation that things can’t get better. Sanders, who sometimes enjoys putting on a grumpy face, is a right jolly old elf.

    Unlike Santa,,,, Bernie does not have an army of magical toy makers. The American taxpayer (there are not enough "well off: Americans) to begin to pay for his foolishness.

    His one redeeming quality is that he highlights the true desires of the left side of the political spectrum.

    Too many false assumptions in pro-Bernie articles and posts. #1 being that the government doesn't spend enough, especially on education. #2 being that any politician will succeed in forcing the wealthy to pay an increased tax rate that will cover even a small amount of the .gov expansion.
